  • Description


    We design and make ceramics on Waiheke Island, New Zealand. Only 35 minutes from Auckland, NZ's biggest city. Waiheke has many lovely beaches, wineries and cafes. Pete lives with his son Nico and dog Roxy. We grow vegetables and chickens on our quiet semi rural property. The workshop is separate where 2 of us slip cast ceramic tableware and exhibit in galleries and make dinner sets for people. You will get an opportunity to learn how to create ceramics from raw materials using the most ancient of making processes. You will meet our families and friends and furry dogs. We also need help with organic gardening and yacht maintenance.
